The local bark park is super close, which means Romeo and I go on daily excursions to meet local peeps and their pooches. We've met some real characters, with two and four legs. Most of the time, he's so happy to be out of the apartment nothing can get him down. He runs and poops and sniffs behinds and drools and smiles at everyone. I've turned one of the pockets of my backpack into Romeo's "diaper bag", with plastic bags, paper towels, and treats. Which really comes in handy, because he has the shoestring drool syndrome. Sometimes Shaun comes too, which makes Romeo extra super happy. He always comes with me when we have recycling to drop off too, and starts his happy dancing when he sees me taking it out to the car. I love my step dog!
